Sponsa Christi October 4th, 2011
This month of October brings us 65 years of loving and prayerful presence in the Diocese of Owensboro, Kentucky, USA! Won’t you join us in thanking and praising God for bringing our 5 Mother Foundresses to the “South” those many years ago. They have all gone to their eternal reward and have left us virtuous examples to follow as we seek to faithfully continue the charism they began on Kentucky soil. God-willing, throughout this month I will bring you snippets of the history of our foundation.
This Friday, October 7th – Feast of the Holy Rosary – is the day we keep as our “Foundation Day”. It was the day Mass was first offered in the little old “mansion” on Wing Avenue in Owensboro. This Wednesday (tomorrow) we will keep as a Gaudeamus Day to celebrate this special occasion.
So be on the look-out for some neat photos, inspiring history and reflections. And please do keep us in prayer – that we may remain faithful to this awesome gift God has given us – to be called to be a Passionist Nun in the 21st century.
Deo Gratias! St. Paul of the Cross, Venerable Mother Mary Crucified and our Mother Foundresses, ora pro nobis!
